by Alan Bennett
It is 1786 and King George III is the most powerful man in the world. But his behavior is becoming increasingly erratic as he succumbs to fits of lunacy. With the King’s mind unravelling at a dramatic pace, ambitious politicians and the scheming Prince of Wales threaten to undermine the power of the Crown, and expose the fine line between a King and a man. This award-winning drama by one of Britain’s best-loved playwrights features an extraordinary cast led by Mark Gatiss, (Dr. Who, Game of Thrones, Sherlock) and Adrian Scarborough (Gavin and Stacey, Upstairs Downstairs, After the Dance).
